Google's Pixel 6 is surprisingly more exciting than Apple's iPhone 13 – CNET

As much as I look forward to Apple’s big iPhone reveal every year, I’m more excited this year about the Pixel 6 and Pixel 6 Pro with Google’s new in-house Tensor chip. I’ve been a happy iPhone owner for years, so this feeling comes as a surprise.
In part this comes from Apple’s lackluster iPhone 13 upgrades. Don’t get me wrong: The iPhone 13 is impressive. Better screens? Yep. Better cameras? Yep. Longer battery life? It’s there. A “free” iPhone 13 for trade-in? Sign me up right now. (On […]

And it offers all that at a price that, sensibly, undercuts its main rivals. The 6.7-inch base 128GB model costs $899 (£849, AU$1,299), a sizable chunk less than the 6.1-inch iPhone 13 Pro’s $999 price and even more off […]
